Life's easier with a great canine companion...

Family, friends, career? That means a schedule full of errands, helping with homework, social obligations, and long hours at work -- not to mention our commute. Add a new family member to the mix and a different species at that... oh my!

Wouldn't we love a dog who is calm & confident, walks without pulling, minds his own business in public places, comes when called...? In short listens to us where and when it matters to us.

We know how you feel and we are here to help.

Our puppy and dog training programs aim to make life with our dog enjoyable and fun. Instead of being over excited, fearful and/or frustrated -- we teach calmness and confidence.

Enjoy a great companion at home and wherever your days take you and your dog.

The D for Dog difference

We only use scientific reward-based training methods.

We want your dog to love the process of learning his new behaviors.  And want you to feel good knowing that we only use most up-to-date humane training methods available & proven to be effective on any species.

We are all about real life results.

It’s all fine and good if your dog behaves in class or shows off for the trainer.  But what really matters is that he responds to you in your home, in public places — wherever your day takes both of you.

We personalize to fit your needs.

We can simply do the training for you, or teach you to train your dog. Either way, we build a training plan for your goals and lifestyle, and we make it as easy and convenient as possible.

We’re certified professional dog trainers.

In an unregulated industry, you want to know your dog trainer knows her P’s & Q’s – that’s why we’ve opted for the most rigorous education available, and committed ourselves to high level ongoing professional development.
